Garlic Butter Herb Steak and Mushrooms

You can obviously tell that we love steak at our house and my 10-year-old isn’t stopping the requests.  I have got two older growing boys that are ready to eat me out of house and home.  I can always count on a steak to be a hearty and satisfying meal that will please the entire family.  I love to cook a good skillet steak because it is just so easy to make!   Dinner is ready in no time at all and it tastes as good as coming out of the kitchen at a restaurant.

How do you cook a steak on a cast iron skillet?

  • Let the steak sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.  Season the steak generously on each side with salt and pepper.  In a cast-iron skillet with 1 Tablespoon of oil over high heat add the steaks to the pan and sear each side 3 minutes or until brown.
  • Reduce heat to medium low.  Cook the steak to desired doneness.  Rare = 125 degrees, Medium Rare = 135 degrees, Medium = 145 degrees, Medium Well = 150 degrees and Well Done = 160 degrees.  Some say to flip only once while cooking, I like to flip mine a few times.
  • Right before serving the steak slather the butter compound on top and let it melt into the tender steak.  This gives it a nice finishing touch and adds such great flavor.


What sides go well with steak?

  • Roasted Garlic Parmesan Potatoes
  • zucchini, corn on the cob, green beans
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Baked Potatoes
  • Side Salad

What steaks should I buy for the skillet?

Thicker cut steaks work best for this method such as a ribeye or a New York Strip.  Bone-in steaks are more difficult to cook and can lead to uneven cooking.  Choose the best steak for your budget and use a thermometer for the best results.

Serves: 4

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 6 ounce mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon thyme, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon oregano, chopped
  • 2 lean New York Steak strip steaks
  • salt and pepper
  • Garlic Butter Compound:
  • ¼ cup softened butter
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon thyme, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon oregano, chopped

  1. In a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, add olive oil and butter, mushrooms, garlic, thyme, rosemary, and oregano. Cook for about 3 minutes or until tender. Remove and set aside on a plate.
  2. Turn the skillet to high heat. Add the steaks. Cook on each side for 3 minutes or until outside is browned. Reduce heat to medium-high. Cook the steaks to the desired doneness. Mine took about 10 minutes flipping 3 times to get a medium well.
  3. Right before the steaks are done, make the garlic butter compound. Mix the butter, garlic and fresh chopped herbs. Slather on top of steaks. Add the mushrooms back to the pan and heat through and let the butter melt into the steaks.
